From the specially commissioned calligraphy to the top-notch Lebanese cooking, it’s authenticity all the way at this long-established and buzzy Westbourne Grove stalwart. Fans of meze will be delighted by Al Waha’s diverse selection, which spans everything from bright, lemony foul moukala (fried broad beans) to warmly flavoured moujadara – a comforting mix of rice and lentils, topped with crisp caramelised onion. Meaty grills, endless supplies of puffed-up bread and some punchy Lebanese wines complete the offer.
August 2019: We’ve added Kenza (one of London’s more palatial Lebanese restaurants, situated just off Devonshire Square) and Middle Eat – a canteen-style lunch spot within easy reach of King’s Cross station.
Whether you're looking for a Middle Eastern feast or a range of light Lebanese treats, we've gathered up our favourite restaurants and cafés in London doing a great trade in meze, mixed grills, and classic Lebanese dishes.
